Day 24 - When to escalate habits

Positive habits are important. They amount to practice of a skill, a regular exercise in focus. Sometimes habits just stay habits and heat after year, nothing changes. We reach plateaus. We get bored, we continue the habit to check a box or maintain a streak. At some point it becomes necessary to break through the membrane and move up to a higher level. How do we realize when it’s time to do so? How do we notice the plateau? Perhaps once every few weeks or months, whatever works, a test should be taken. There should also be a concrete goal and a strong reason for practicing the habit. Write it down. Make a schedule. Get it done.
